Recent acts of anti-Semitic graffiti at two Cobb County schools have led to an outcry among the local Jewish community, leading some students and community members to speak out at Thursday’s school board meeting, calling on board members to reinstate an anti-bias program.

School officials said that disciplinary action is being taken against the perpetrators and the school board is working on a resolution, but Allison Padilla-Goodman with the Anti-Defamation League says the school board need to do more to address hate.
